Mermaid Baby Costume
Sadie the Mermaid DIY costume
|Costume type:||Costumes for Babies|
This homemade costume for babies entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Mandee, the 'The Incredible Mermaid Girl' costume creator:
This is my baby girl, Sadie Jean on her very first Halloween as part of a traveling side show appearing as the Incredible Mermaid Girl! I knew I wanted to make an infant costume that included a stroller so a traveling side show seemed like the perfect costume.
I created her stroller cover using foam core as the fish tank frame; blue fabric, glitter tulle & clear plastic Christmas ornaments for the water; and foam core for the signage & held it all together using a glue gun. I attached the whole contraption to the stroller (a Britax B-agile) using Velcro Garland Tie and all that was missing was a fat little mermaid to go inside. I created her mermaid costume using a onesie she already had and some felt pieces as scales. The only items I bought for this costume was some felt and the plastic Christmas ornaments...everything else was leftover from other projects.
She was a big hit out on the trick-or-treat circuit!
